fortunately, Avira corrected their position. They're writing now, that
they cannot find a virus in "Shutdown Windows' servers", and therefore
will not detect it as being harmful in the next update.

The original text reads as following:

----------------------------- snip -------------------------------------
In der von Ihnen eingesendeten Datei ist kein Virus enthalten.

Es handelt sich um einen Fehlalarm. Dieser Fehlalarm wird mit einem der
naechsten Updates von AntiVir beseitigt.

Wir bitten um Ihr Verstaendnis.

Thanx to all, who supported me!

Ich würde schätzen, dass ca. 87% aller spontanen Schätzungen völlig für
den Arsch sind.

In the file sent in by you no virus is contained. It concerns a false
alarm. This false alarm is eliminated with one of the next updates by
AntiVir. We ask for your understanding.

See, we still don't know if they targeted VB or if they just targeted an
app they thought contained malware.

Glad to see that you got it fixed through them VB.

It wasn't malware so shouldn't have been detected as malware ;-)
